The second most useful option would be to have the same set of pseudorandom numbers repeat. This can be done using a negative number parameter in the Rnd function. Replace the following line of code: uArray(rCt, 0) = Rnd() with: uArray(rCt, 0) = Rnd(-rCt) P1: a/b P2: c/d JWBT550-c02 QC: e/f T1: g JWBT550-Allman July 25, 2011 21:53 Printer Name: Yet to Come Random Numbers, Distributions, and Basic Simulation Setup 19 5. The final piece of code exports the array we filled to the Excel worksheet so we can quickly see the results.

However, what happens when we try to characterize processes that are not symmetric, like one that obeys a lognormal distribution? 14b. 14 (a) Normal distribution with symmetric confidence intervals to 68 percent. (b) Log normal distribution with skewed confidence intervals to 68 percent.

Recall that a Wiener process has a mean of 0 with some constant variance. This means the stock price will simply fluctuate about So exp(0) = So . What we need to do here is to introduce a drift term, μ, that scales with time. 5). 5) Does this really work? 6). 6) since = 0 and [μ,σ ] are constants. Our simple guesses have taken us quite far. But you may have noticed that while we solved two problems, we have now introduced another, namely that the price is now unbounded and will eventually drift toward infinity.
